Stoll Vaughan’s latest record The Conversation, was released this past summer. It was co-produced by Carl Broemel, guitarist of My Morning Jacket and Mike Wanchic, Mellencamp’s longtime guitarist and co-producer. The album’s title, Stoll says, signifies “being in a continual conversation regarding people, God, and the fears we carry around—and how music interplays with everything emotionally and spiritually. But it’s really me trying to listen, and then relying on trusted friends to help me put down what I heard.”
